Here’s former Mountaineer forward Derek Culver speaking with the media after a pre-NBA Draft workout for the Golden State Warriors.

Culver responded to a question about why he left WVU early and why he thought it was the right time to enter the NBA Draft.

“It was something me and my family we talked about for a little while. We just weighed our options. I just felt like it was time for us to take that route. Me and my family, we talked and deliberated about it for a long time, and we ended up at the conclusion of doing that. We felt like it was a good choice.”

Some outlets have given Culver a 2nd round grade, but most mock drafts have him going undrafted.
